    Colombian Sports Jersey's

    I really like them and the local teams shirts like AN (Atltico Nacional) will gets you lots of thumbs up in bars. Although I did have some awkward moments in Barra Ejecutiva with some drunk guys asking me who my fav player was. I rolled the dice and said "Juan". LOL.

    Anywho I have found the cheapest place to buy them last time I was in town was a street vendor on the corner of Calle 50 and Car 49 (Junin) for 10 k.

    I did have more of them but US GF's keep taking them. LOL.

    The 2 on the left though I got in Costa Rica, Deportivo Saprissa and LDA (Liga Deportiva Alajuelense). 2 of my favs when I was growing up in CR as a kid.

I can say that the Modafinil was either fake or seriously under dosed because I did not feel a thing from it. I cannot recall the price on them but the name on the box was Vigia 200 MG. I only bought them because when I asked for Adderall they said that in Colombia they don't sell that kind of stuff. The generic Cialis seemed to work. I usually bring along my OTC drugs with me but on this trip I ran out! Where do you seasoned vets buy your meds in Medellin? I usually don't care if prices are a little higher than normal but as an example I was sold 600 MG tabs of Ibuprofen at about 2 k a piece. Outrageous but I was desperate and did not care at the time.
    Pharmacy prices vary widely from store to store. The Aleman pharmacies always seemed to be more expensive. Last time I bought ibuprofen I think I paid 8 k for 10,800 MG. 4 packs of 50 MG sildenafil run around 8 k as well.

    Get away from Parque Lleras and you should find better prices.

    Drug Prices

    Tattoos

    I have no idea about the skull. But speaking of tattoos has anyone on here gotten a tattoo in Medellin? I am wondering who some of the best artists in the area are and pricing.

    Just curious but what is with the numerous Colombian escorts with the large tattoo of a skull on their thigh?

    Chit Chat Topics

    Here are some of my chit chat thoughts from my recent trip. A lot of this will sound obvious to the regulars, but this is geared more for newbies since I was just a newbie myself.

    - Learn spanish. If you are planning to come to Medellin. I would plan the trip at least 6 months from now and spend the time learning spanish if you don't know any. It's also a good investment in time and effort if you ever plan to go to other spanish-speaking counties in the future. I have only basic spanish, but it really helped. I can only imagine how difficult it would be here to have no spanish.

    - ATMs. My card didn't work at Banco de Bogota ATMs, but it worked at others. If your transaction doesn't go through, don't panic. Try some other banks. Also, I found that the transactions went through easier if I just pressed one of the pre-selected amounts. When I tried to do a custom amount, it would often not go through. Although I wanted to take out more money at a time, the most I could take out at once was 780,000. Most ATMs the limit was 600,000.

    - Know the precise location if you are going to visit a casa. They do not have signs out front. You need to know ahead of time the exact building you are going to. If you think you can just go the the approximate location and find it by walking around, you are mistaken.

    - Credit cards. At some places they will try to charge you in US dollars on the credit card machine, when they do this they use a slightly worse rate than the going rate. This actually only amounts to pennies when paying for a meal at a restaurant, so no big deal. But at my hotel, when paying for 9 nights I saved some decent money by having him re-do the transaction in pesos instead of dollars.

    - Cabs. Cabs are super cheap and plentiful all over town. I was surprised how many cab drivers didn't really know where they were going though. I had to pull up directions on my phone and help them get there quite a few times. The subway is cheap, and I found it to be a fun way to kind of tour the city and interact with the people. But for practical purposes as far as getting anywhere, I would just cab or uber. I just rode the subway and metro cable as a tourist thing to do.

And if I remember correctly, I think I read it is not customary to tip taxi drivers in Colombia. Is that right? What about tipping in restaurants now that I think about it? Thanks.
    Use the ATM in the airport and get that tipping stuff out of your head.

    Thanks for the info, Combo. That makes sense.

    I've traded FX and interest rates most of my life, though I'm still not sure I'd call myself an expert!

    BTW -- USD, SF, and JPY are the "safe-haven" currencies.

    Prob. More to do with China trade issues than US stock market, though the latter would also be affected by China trade to some extent. If China trade goes south then the peso goes with the other emerging markets lower. Arguably due to more China trade, Colombian peso affected more. The other issue driving peso to keep an eye on is oil price.

    Has nothing to do with nothing. Only coincidence, not correlation.
